Here’s the first trailer for an new Irish short film from director Paul Lynch, titled An Bean Sidhe. The film is written by Eoin O’Sullivan and picked up a Golden Blaster award for Best Screenplay at Octocon 2013.
The film tells the story of Christian, a young Irish man who plays a prank that goes horribly wrong.If you are unlucky enough to hear a banshee wail, someone you know will die – just pray it’s not you.
The film stars stage actor Nick Hurt as Christain, with Becky Phelan as Lorraine, and Marian Rose (Sodium Party) as the titular wailing spirit.
The film crowd-sourced its financing and was featured here in March. We look forward to seeing the full film when it hits the festival circuit in the coming months.
